First and foremost, I want to acknowledge the incredible efforts you all have undertaken to keep students and yourselves safe and healthy this school year. It has by no means been easy and your diligence has paid off in our ability to keep schools open. With the last week of school and summer learning upon us it is imperative we continue our efforts to provide for health and safety. On June 9, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released an update to the COVID-19 community levels. Jackson County is now categorized to be in high transmission. Based on our local factors, please review the mitigation methods below and continue to practice these strategies to reduce the spread of Covid in our community.
- Cleaning and disinfecting
- Physical distancing to the degree possible
- Airflow and circulation – the forecast looks good for the week, take advantage of being outdoors and keeping windows and doors open
- Symptom screening – please monitor yourselves and students for symptoms
- COVID – 19 Testing – tests are available at your buildings and we have some in reserve if necessary. Please contact me or district nurses if you are in need of more tests.
- Isolation – it is important that symptomatic individuals and those that test positive for COVID-19 isolate from others to reduce transmission.
